TN JR Beta Convention

This year’s Tennessee Junior Beta Club Convention is again at the Opryland Hotel. It is November 19-21, which is Sunday- Tuesday before Thanksgiving. This is a great opportunity for our exceptional students. They will learn from and compete with students from other schools across the state in academics as well as the arts. Priority on attending will be given to the first thirty students that sign up to participate in two or more of the many available competition opportunities. The complete convention handbook can be found on this webpage. It includes a list of what all of the competitions mean and which are individual vs. groups events.
